  • ATMOSPHERE
  • LITHOSPHERE/BIOSPHERE
  • HYDROSPHERE
  • THOUGH THE BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS, WE ADD 9.1 BILLION TONNES OF CARBON INTO THE AIR EACH YEAR! THE OCEANS, PLANTS AND LAND TAKE UP SOME OF THIS, BUT ABOUT 4.1 BILLION TONNES REMINS IN THE ATMOSPHERE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE.
  • ON LAND, GREEN PLANTS TAKE IN CARBON DIOXIDE AND TO CREATE OXYGEN AND GLCOSE THOUGH PHOTOSYNTHESIS. ANIMALS OBTAIN THIS CARBON THOUGH DIGESTION OF PLANTS. ANIMALS RELEASE CARBON DIOXIDE BACK INTO THE AIR THOUGH RESPIRATION. 
  • AT SEA PHYTOPLANKTON PHOTOSYNTHESEISE AT THE OCEAN SURFACE, THIS REMOVES CARBON DIOXIDE, ALLOWING MORE CARBON TO DISSOLVE IN TO THE WATER FROM THE ATMOSPHERE. WHEN PHYTOPLANTON DIE, AND SINK TO THE OCEAN FLOOR THEY TAKE CARBON WITH THEM.
